It's hard for me to evaluate this tea because I am not much of a fan of Lapsang Souchong...but this is among the smoothest of the ones I've tried so far. Perhaps I'd develop a taste for it if I drank it more often.

Very strong smoky aroma, more like a sausage or fireplace than a tea. Flavor is extremely smooth and mellow; although the aroma suggests a warm / hot character, the flavor imparts a cool quality, and the aftertaste is very clean. Surprisingly light, to the point of being thin-bodied. I think I would prefer this tea blended with something else that would impart more body and more flavor, but have a more subdued aroma.
